Google launched Google Play Magazines and TV shows in the US at Google I/O last week. Well, it looks like you folks across the pond won’t be getting access to these new services, or to Google Music, in time for the Nexus 7 launch. Currently, the UK has access to Apps, Books, and Movies. Streaming music with Google Music has yet to arrive, and the UK was not included in the new roll-out of Magazines and TV shows.
“The UK version will feature all of the options currently available in the UK Play store,” a Google spokesperson told The Inquirer. That short sentence says everything it needs to. Only the current offerings will be available to UK users when the Nexus 7 launches for £159. Of course, this does not mean that the UK will never get these services, and it’s likely those services will all show up at some point in the future.
Does the delay in adding all Google Play services in the UK deter anyone from buying a Nexus 7? The 7-inch tablet is a Google Play consumption device, so we understand if you’re disappointed it won’t be all it can be at launch, but does that price point make you willing to take the plunge anyway and wait for the services to come? UK folks, let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
